Final year BA (Hons) Fashion Photography student Morgan Roberts has work featured in the November issue of L'Officiel Singapore magazine.
Morgan pitched the idea, titled ‘A Walk in the Park’ and worked with the Editor-In-Chief of L’Officiel Singapore to realise the editorial, which was shot on location in Battersea Park, London. The shoot includes collections from Autumn Winter 2020, featuring work by designers such Givenchy, Dolce and Gabbana and Simone Rocha, amongst others.
Morgan said, “As it was an editorial pitch, I came up with the idea myself, I just needed the approval from the magazine. In the treatment I sent over I had the moodboard, which I put together, a styling board from Sofia Lazzari, the stylist who I worked with on this, casting ideas as well as hair and makeup so they could get a full idea of what we wanted to create.”
It wasn’t all plain sailing for Morgan and the team, they shot in early September and had to abide by strict social distancing measures, “we were all able to keep a safe distance and of course wore the appropriate PPE. It was a fun shoot as a whole, we were just roaming round this beautiful park all day and working with a great team made it even better,” Morgan said.
Sarah Eyre, Course Leader for BA (Hons) Fashion Photography said “Fashion Photography students are encouraged to reach out to organisations with their work to gain experience in managing professional commissions, and see their work published as a way of developing their employability skills. It is great to see how Morgan has worked with L’Officiel magazine, he has worked really hard on this project.”
